Scoliosis & pregnanc: Short answer, NO. If you have not progressed beyond 40 degrees by 24 years, you are likely out of the woods for worsening and requiring surgery. Scoliosis of the spine does not affect the pelvic inlet or outlet volume of space, even if there is a pelvic tilt. You will be able to have a normal full-term pregnancy with no increased risk of complications.
